KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - A female osprey occupies a nest recently constructed on a speaker in the lower parking lot of the Press Site. Eggs have been sighted in the nest. The NASA logo seen in the background is on the nearby Vehicle Assembly Building. Known as a fish hawk, the osprey selects sites of opportunity, from trees and telephone poles to rocks or even flat ground. In the United States it is found from Alaska to Florida and the Gulf Coast. Osprey nests are found throughout the...

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- This logo represents the mission of the Dawn spacecraft. During its nearly decade-long mission, Dawn will study the asteroid Vesta and dwarf planet Ceres, celestial bodies believed to have accreted early in the history of the solar system. The mission hopes to unlock some of the mysteries of planetary formation, including the building blocks and the processes leading to their state today. The Dawn mission is managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of...

The Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on New Horizons captured another dramatic picture of Jupiter's moon Io and its volcanic plumes, 19 hours after the spacecraft's closest approach to Jupiter on Feb. 28, 2007. LORRI took this 75 millisecond exposure at 0035 Universal Time on March 1, 2007, when Io was 2.3 million kilometers (1.4 million miles) from the spacecraft. Io's dayside is deliberately overexposed to bring out faint details in the plumes and on the moon's night side. The...

*Description*: This is a NASA Hubble Space Telescope image of the central region of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 1313. Hubble was used to resolve stars within the galaxy to do a census of various classes of stars distributed across the galaxy. The observations show that hot blue stars (of class B) are widely scattered across the galaxy. This is evidence of "infant mortality" in which the young, so-called open clusters where stars are born, quickly became gravitationally...

This milestone takes astronomers from inference to direct observation of dark matter's influence in the universe. Because of the finite speed of light, regions furthest away are also seen as they existed a long time ago. The map stretches halfway back in time to the beginning of the universe. The map...

The main noteworthy feature on the Sun this past week is the one, dark, coronal hole that we watched as it rotated to the Sun's center over three days (June 17-19, 2007). Anyone who inspects the movie carefully will note that there were no looping arcs, no flares or solar storms, no filaments, and no bright active regions. Yes, the Sun remained largely featureless except for the coronal hole, and even that hole is not particularly large as these things go. We should note too that the north and...

This composite image combines EIT images from three wavelengths (171Ôø_, 195Ôø_ and 284Ôø_) into one that reveals solar features unique to each wavelength. Since the EIT images come to us from the spacecraft in black and white, they are color coded for easy identification. For this image, the nearly simultaneous images from May 1998 were each given a color code (red, yellow and blue) and merged into one.

Double prominences -- Two large solar prominences in extreme ultraviolet light (ionized helium at 304) roughly the same size but quite different in structure appeared on the Sun on 18 March 2003. The observation of two large prominences in one image makes this one of the most spectacular images that SOHO has captured. Prominences are large clouds of relatively cool, dense plasma suspended in the Sun's hot, tenuous corona. Magnetic fields built up enormous forces that propelled particles out...

We have put together an entire week's (April 22- 28, 2007) worth of frames into a movie of the Sun in extreme ultraviolet light (304 Angstroms). The frames do not show off any major solar events. The devil, as they say, is in the details and what lovely details are revealed. The Sun's edge can be seen busily erupting with little spicules (vertical spikes), sliding plasma, small...

The most distinctive feature on the Sun this past week has been a medium-sized coronal hole seen as the dark area in the lower right quadrant in this image from the STEREO (Ahead) spacecraft (May 25, 2007). When combined with an image taken by the Behind spacecraft, the image becomes 3D. Coronal holes appear darker in ultraviolet images, in this instance, in a spectral line of eleven-times ionized iron, formed at temperatures of about 1.5 million K. Since coronal holes are 'open' magnetically,...

Using STEREO (Ahead) spacecraft's highest resolution frames (2048àö__2048 pixels per frame), we can zoom in a lot on areas of interest and still maintain good visual acuity. Over 34 hours (June 29-30, 2007), we zoom in on a pair of active regions and observe numerous instances of flaring activity, especially from the lead one of the two. These were low intensity flares. With frames taken every 10 minutes (and paced here at six frames a second), the motion is not jumpy or freeze-framed. It...

First Map of Subsurface Flows in the Sun's Convection Zone This map provides the first view of an important part of the Sun's interior, the region call the convection zone. The convection zone lies directly beneath the photosphere, which forms the Sun's visible surface and effectively hides what is below. As a result, very little is known about the convection zone's internal structure, despite the fact that it is the source of sunspots, solar flares and most other forms of solar activity that...

A bright and expansive coronal mass ejection (CME) unfurled itself on January 24, 2007. As seen in SOHO's LASCO C2 coronagraph, the bright front emerged in the shape of an arc from behind the occulting disk but soon expanded into a ragged, bulbous shape with lots of structural lines inside it. The source of this CME was an active region that had just began to rotate into view the next day. An EIT 304 Angstrom image of the Sun taken at nearly the same time was enlarged and superimposed on the...

STEREO captured three differently shaped CMEs (coronal mass ejections) blasting out from the Sun over a three-day span (November 14-17, 2007). The COR2 (ahead) coronagraph, taking an image very 20 minutes, lets us generate a smooth motion movie of these events. The first CME billowed out as a doughnut-shaped CME to the lower right. The second one, late on Nov. 15, was a much more diffuse, "halo" CME that seemed to create a faint halo around the Sun as it expanded in all directions. In...

A close up view of the top of the Sun as seen in profile shows thousands of little spurts, like small blow torches, shooting out all over the Sun. The movie shows just an average day's worth of this kind of activity as seen from the STEREO spacecraft (Ahead) in extreme ultraviolet light (August 3, 2007). These spurts are called spicules. With STEREO's 2048àö__2048 image resolution and an image every 10 minutes, we can zoom in on features like this with no distortion. Spicules are plasma jets...

LASCO C2 coronograph image in which a twisting, helical-shaped CME spins off from the Sun. This particular CME and erupting prominence is somewhat unusual in that the width of the blast is relatively narrow and the strands of plasma are twisting. The dark disk blocks the Sun so that the LASCO instrument can observe the structures of the corona in visible light. The white circle represents the size and position of the Sun.

Scientists with the instrument were surprised to discover that the Sun has tall gyrating storms far larger and faster than tornadoes on the Earth. So far they have detected a dozen such events. They occur most frequently near the north and south poles of the Sun and are almost as wide as the Earth. Steady wind speeds of 50,000 km/h and gusts ten times faster occur in the solar tornadoes.

The complex distribution and mixing of magnetic polarities (here displayed as yellow and blue) form a "magnetic carpet" over the entire Sun (upper right panel). The upper left panel shows the EUV emission taken simultaneously by CDS from plasma at the temperature of 250 000 K. The lower panel shows an overlay of the two images. Sequences of such images show that many of the transition region brightenings correspond to changes in the magnetic field.

A rapidly expanding "solar quake" on the Sun's surface depicted here by the Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI). It immediately followed a solar flare on 1996 July 6 and spread out more than 100,000 km at the solar surface. Scientists have shown that solar flares produce seismic waves, and gigantic seismic quakes, in the Sun's interior. They have tracked these seismic waves and found that "sun-quakes" closely resemble earthquakes on our planet.
